As of January 2019, the X MAX Starry is on its third version. The updated model now includes haptic feedback to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature, an improved mouthpiece, and more. Check out the full breakdown of these changes over on our blog post announcing the X MAX Starry Version 3.
Who's the X MAX Starry for?
The X MAX Starry is for anyone looking for a quality portable vaporizer at a great price. Full digital control, a pocketable size, swappable battery, haptic feedback, a magnetic, zirconia mouthpiece and an anodized aluminum body. The Starry delivers features that we don’t see in vaporizers at twice the price.
POTV limited edition
We're big fans of the Starry and teamed up with X-MAX to re-work the style. All black with discreet CNC'd logos. The only difference is the styling.
The Starry vaporizer is powered by a single 18650 battery (included) that is removable so you can just swap it out and keep going all day, but you might not rush out to buy a spare since we got 80 minutes of run time off a single charge. You can’t ask for much more than great battery life and the option to swap in a fresh battery when needed! And we love removable batteries because you can just swap in a new one versus having to send your vaporizer in for warranty if your battery ever dies.
Well made & pocketable
Tired of the sea of plastic shell vapes on the market at this price point? This is where the Starry really stands apart with its anodized aluminum body, magnetic lid enclosure and ceramic zirconia mouthpiece. The size is right, too, coming in at just a smidge bigger than the PAX 3.
Fast heat-up time
The Starry gets up to 390° F in just 25 seconds and to top temp in 35 seconds, perfect for a quick, discreet session.
X MAX has been producing quality vaporizers for the budget vape market for a while now and the Starry sticks to the script with a standard ceramic conduction oven that tastes good and works fast. Your herbs and vapor touch nothing but ceramic and stainless steel.
The Starry’s controls are simple and make sense with three buttons to control on/off, temperature, session timer and Celsius/Fahrenheit display. Turning it on is as simple as holding the power button in for three seconds. Plus, the Starry will buzz gently to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature.
Easy to load. Cool mouthpiece.
Loading is easy with its beveled oven ring and you won’t worry about losing the mouthpiece since it can magnetically stick to the side when open. The ceramic zirconia mouthpiece is strong and super smooth for a comfortable feel that preserves taste.
There are a number of vapes in this price range, but the Starry really stands out. Featuring a pocketable size, great build quality, removable batteries, and a magnetic zirconia mouthpiece it has features that you won’t find in some of our favorite vapes at more than twice the price. It really is one of the best values in the vape market!
The Starry vaporizer has a 1-year warranty when purchased from Planet of the Vapes and, as with all vaporizers purchased from us, you are also covered by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

I use my new vape for short personal sessions and it works great. Took a bit to get used to compared to a pipe but I won't go back now. So easy to use and since I don't have long sessions I don't need to clean very often. No clogs here. I barely pack down my herb. Much better on the lungs too. Only negative is that I can still smell my herb when it's in the (free) vacuum pack carrier. Also free grinder works great!
X Max Starry v3 is insane
Use this thing practically everyday and it never fails! It’s great for heavy usage and mobility and most importantly, it gets the job done!
The X Max Starry is one fine inexpensive Vaporizer
Great vaporizer, great taste, great price, Thanks
I've tried multiple times to get good results out of this and just cannot seem to get a positive result that I like. Mouthpiece gets very hot during use. I wouldn't recommend this device, I'll stick with my Vapcap.
Hi Brian, In regards to the hot mouthpiece, we've included a few pieces of very short silicone rings that you can slip over the mouthpiece stem to mitigate that heat. In regards to vapor production, check out the following tips: Pay particular attention to your draw technique. Very quick, short, cigar-like puffs works best with this vape. This inhalation technique is super important so as not to allow the incoming cool air to overcome the heat being provided by the heater. All vapes have their own unique learning curves, and your new Starry is no different in this regard. With a bit of experimentation with your grind consistency, pack, temp settings and draw technique, you should be able to find the sweet spot that is right for YOU which very well may be different for someone else. Please read through these tips and get back to me as to how things are going. Tips: Grind your herbs and pack the oven full with a gentle tamp on the top of the load. Turn the unit on to around 415F and wait for it to come up to temp. Then let it heat soak for about 20 seconds before taking your first hit. Take short, cigar puffs, or long and slow draws. This draw technique is super important. This should get you on the fast track to success with this vape and you can tweak your technique from there. There are a lot of variables that go into the vaporizing experience, and the most important one is the quality of your herbs. I can't be of any help in assessing the quality of yours, but inferior herbs have fewer compounds on the surface and don't vape as well. Even with a very fine grind, cheap herbs usually make the experience kind of blah. So make sure you have high quality herbs and we can get to work on technique! If you are using the grinder we sent you then you will be fine. It grinds to a medium consistency and if you want it finer you can hold it upside down while you twist the lid. This will keep the herbs in the cutting chamber longer and get you a finer grind. After that, you want to use a full, tamped down pack. It doesn't need to be like a brick in there, but never loose. And you will want it full. If you have good herbs you should see some decent vapor on the first puff and more on successive puffs. The most common mistakes people make with a vape like this is to either pack it less than full, pack it loosely, not giving it a 20 second heat soak, and/or sucking too hard. Any one of these three things can kill the vapor production. That's all there is to it. From there you can adjust your grind, pack and temperature to your preference, but this is a good place to baseline from. Please know that if you are still not happy with your Starry, we can either replace for something else or we can offer you a full refund if you wish, your choice. Creating a service ticket for you now to discuss. Awaiting your reply Larry
Works perfectly. Easy to use.
